Quick Programming Update

Hi everyone!

Anthrocon programming is shaping up quite nicely this year. We have some really interesting and innovative new panels being done this year. In the fandom track, we have something new: The Husky Meet and Greet. That's right, some dedicated husky fans are putting together a panel to meet, talk about, and generally celebrate huskies and husky characters. Like last year, we also have a fun "Foxes Abound" panel. Several other panels about other animal and regional species are in the works. In our Science and technology track, we now have scheduled a panel for the "RoboFurs". These are robot entusiasts who have anthropomorphic robots as toys and virtual pets. This is a first for us, and we're very happy to add this wonderful new panel to our lineup.

Rooms available at all hotels

Remember, the 25th is the last day to cancel a Westin reservation without penalty! We have seen several already, and as those people cancel, rooms are coming available. Before you give in to dispair because you did not get a room, try calling the hotels directly and find out if anything has become available. Remember too that the Westin has a waiting list going.

Art Show reservation deadline has passed, now what?

The deadline for Art Show reservations has passed, but artists who are still interested can still send in a late reservation. You can download the info packet with the display rules and a space reservation from the Art Show page, http://www.anthrocon.org/artshow .

Your request will be held as "pending" and you'll have to wait and see if any space remains or becomes available once all the in-time reservations have been accommodated.
